Angels@Essex To Award Up To £150K Investment Funding Following Next Round of Space to Grow Webinars

The first round of investment funding held by the University of Essex’s Angels@Essex team is to be held in late October, when four businesses which have undergone previous evaluation and selection, will have the chance to share up to £150K investment funding. The successful businesses that will be heading to the final pitches are BidnStay Ltd, Conigital Ltd, Cityspotter and WYSPR, all of which have presented ground-breaking business ideas using AI and been hand-selected for their innovation and business knowledge.

A second round of funding will be held in late November, following the next series of Space to Grow webinars. This series will begin on 20th October and focuses on equipping businesses with the skills and knowledge they need to become investment-ready. The full schedule of webinars is below.

Businesses attending the Space to Grow programme will have the chance to apply for the next round of funding from the Angels@Essex, which will be a share of £150K in convertible loan funding. Applicants are encouraged to attend all four webinars in the Space to Grow programme, prior to the funding panel, in order to gain a full view of the requirements and expectations of applicants.
